Albarn was performing at the Africa Express as part of the festival on July 4 when he was forced off stage after performing for a marathon five hours. The musician began around 11 p.m. and performed until 4 a.m., when venue staff and security started telling him that he was violating their curfew.
Albarn chose to defy the curfew, instead breaking into a rendition of the Clash’s “Should I Stay Or Should I Go.”
“F—k what anyone says. You want more, I’ll give you more,” Albarn told the crowd, who cheered enthusiastically.
Albarn attempted to extend his time on stage by getting the audience to cheer, “More, more more!” But, in the end, he failed and had to be escorted out by security. The audience booed loudly, but Albarn was not allowed back on stage and the concert came to an end.
Albarn and Blur are currently on tour with their new album, The Magic Whip.
